FUSES AND CIRCUIT BREAKERS
The headlamp circuit is protected by a circuit breaker in the light switch. An overload on the breaker will cause the lamps to "flicker" on and off. If this condition develops, have your headlamp wiring checked immediately. Also, a special circuit breaker, mounted on the firewall, protects the power window, power seat, and power top circuits if vehicle is so equipped. Where current load is too heavy, the circuit breaker intermittently opens and closes protecting the circuit until the cause is found and eliminated.

Fuses, located in the Junction Block beneath the dash are:
Radio, TCS, Rear Defogger, Hydra-matic Downshift 10 Amp.
W/S Wiper 25 Amp.
Stop Lamps, Hazard Flasher 20 Amp.
Heater, A/C 25 Amp.
Directional Signal, Backup Lamps, Cruise Master, Side Marker Lamps, Blocking Relay (A/C) 20 Amp.
Instrument Lamps, Floor Shift Lamps 04 Amp.
Gauges, Instrument Panel Warning 10 Amp.
Clock, Courtesy Light, Lighter, And Diesel Control Decklid Lock, Glove Box and Dome Lamp 25 Amp.
Tail Lamps, License, and Side Marking Lamp 20 Amp.

An Air Conditioning high blower speed fuse, 30 amp. is located in an in-line fuse holder running from horn relay to Air Conditioning relay.

Fusible Links are incorporated into the wiring system. These are wires of such a gauge that they will fuse (or melt) before damage occurs to an entire wiring harness in the event of an electrical overload.
